Apparently, George Clooney is determined to not let anyone disturb him at home. Allegedly, the famous actor asked help from officials of the Laglio community. Consequently, a public notice was posted by the mayor of Laglio, the community around the actor’s Lake Como home, warning people to not disturb the famous actor.
Without a doubt, what Clooney wants is privacy. The actor aims to discourage both locals and fans from disturbing him and his family at home. The same note indicated that anyone who fails to respect Cooney’s and Amal Alamuddin’s privacy at home, by setting foot on the ground without permission, faces fines of $600. This is not the first time when the mayor of the Italian community tries to help Clooney protect his privacy.
Actually, before the couple married last year, a notice prohibited people from lingering on the road behind the pair’s house, while boats were instructed to stay at least 100 meters from the shoreline. Well, although some may find these measures too much, it seems that many people in Laglio are not bothered at all. Actually, Clooney is very much welcomed in the town. “He’s returned Lake Como to a very high profile, not just in Europe, but around the world,” it has been claimed.
Sources claimed that locals are happy about this, as Clooney’s decision to move in the area might trigger a similar behavior from other rich people, which will definitely mean a development opportunity for the small town. “Having him settle here was like winning the lottery for us. Following his example, some very rich people have moved in and bought villas which were in a state of semi-abandonment,” one local was quoted as saying.
“They have restored them at a cost of millions and millions of euros and that has created work for builders, carpenters, gardeners. There are a lot of Russian buyers and now the Chinese are beginning to move in,” another inhabitant explained. Of course, not everyone agrees. Reports indicated that some people see the moving on the star in the area as a bad thing. These locals alleged that with the restrictions and the protection given to Clooney, it actually is “like living in a mini dictatorship.”
